Dr. Myers 3 favorite tools for self myofascial release and increasing flexibility:
1.) The Jump Stretch Band
2.) The Orb
3.) Trigger Point Foam Roller.
With most people sitting all day long at work immobility quickly begins to show up. That's when overuse or repetitive injuries occur. By investing in these 3 very simple devices you can improve range of motion and prevent an injury from occurring.
Here’s how to use each:
1.) Jump Stretch Band increases flexibility, it's great for the hamstrings and back muscles and works much better than a Yoga strap.
2.) The Orb is perfect for the buttocks and hips as well as the hamstrings along with the lower neck area called the traps.
3.)The Trigger Point Foam Roller is a great general tool for several muscles. Including the thighs and calves as well as a general mobility tool for the thoracic spine. The thoracic spine is typically very restricted in office workers due to sitting.

Dr. Myers focuses not only on the joints of the body, but most specifically the muscular system within the body and its dysfunction, resulting in your problem(s).
